Snapdeal employee Dipti Sarna, who went missing near Delhi two days ago, has returned home and told the police that she was kidnapped by four people at knife-point.
Dipti, 24, called her parents at around 7 this morning and said she was on a train to Delhi. “She called me and said Papa I am fine, please pick me up,” her father Narendra Sarna said.
Dipti has told the police that she does not want to press charges against the men, who allegedly kidnapped her after she took an auto in Ghaziabad. The four, she has said, fed her on time, took care of her and also left a gun with her at some point.
“They blindfolded her and dropped her at some railway station at 3 or 4 am,” Mr Sarna said, adding, “The people who kidnapped her didn’t harm her in anyway and they even gave her food on time. I think the people who kidnapped her were beginners and they got afraid that is why they left her.”
Dipti’s phone and bag are missing. The police say they are corroborating her statement and are searching for the alleged kidnappers.
On Wednesday, Dipti left the Snapdeal office in Gurgaon and went on her usual route home.
She took the metro to Ghaziabad, where she got into an auto around 8 pm. She has told the police that the auto broke down and then she took another one that had the alleged kidnappers.
The police say Dipti is exhausted and will be questioned later.
As comments on the missing young woman flooded social media, the police launched a massive search. Snapdeal started an online campaign using #HelpFindDipti, which became a top trend on twitter. The company has tweeted on Dipti being found.
Dipti has been found and reunited with her family. Will update with more details. Thank you for all your support and prayers.#HelpFindDipti
